Bahian Cuisine Food Tour
This tour is focused on the beautiful and tantalising tastes of Bahian cuisine, infused with African and Brazilian flavours and spices. Visit one of the largest open air markets in Brazil and wind your way through the labyrinth of food stalls.
To understand a city the best place to begin is in its local markets. Salvador is surrounded by the bay and ocean, and its fishermen protected by Yemanjá, the goddess of the sea. Fittingly, our tour focused on Bahia cuisine should begin in the recently refurbished Agua dos Meninos fish market, the city's main distribution center for all that comes from Yemanjá's domain. From here it is a short hop to the Sao Joaquim market, a traditionally vital trading link to the abundance of produce from the farming hinterland of the Reconcavo, and still the largest open air market in Brazil, a labyrinth of almost 800 stalls selling a myriad of goods; fruit, vegetables and spices, earthenware cooking utensils, wicker basketwork, medicinal and sacred herbs. We continue our tour with lunch at a local restaurant to try the main dishes of Bahian cuisine.
